AGROKOR - SPONSOR OF THE CROATIAN CHESS ASSOCIATION
Jun 07, 2006
The Agreement on sponsorship between Agrokor and the Croatian Chess Association was signed today between Ivica Todorić, President of the Agrokor Corporation and Stjepan Šturlan, President of the CCA. The Agreement refers to the period of one year, in which the majority of the sponsorship funds will be used for participation of our national team at the Olympic Games, the European Championship - individuals, the Mediterranean Championship and the MITROP Cup, upon which the name and brand of Agrokor will be promoted. Agrokor, as the leading Croatian and one of the leading food industries in the region, continues its tradition of providing a strong support to the Croatian sport and recognising real potentials, even before they start winning the world records. Wishing to help the Croatian chess players to continue achieving good results at the forthcoming competitions Agrokor enabled them to concentrate themselves to the best possible achievements and thus contribute to the excellent image of Croatia as a successful country of athletes. Having signed the Agreement, Mr Šturlan, Vice-President of the CCA said: "Agrokor's sponsorship of the Croatian Chess Association is a very important support to the Croatian chess and represents a continuous financial aid to the activities of the Croatian Chess Association at numerous important European and world competitions. The Croatian chess players will show their appreciation by achieving great results, as they have done so far and so many." Thanks to this sponsorship the CCA will be able to organise international chess championships in Croatia, national championships and chess schools, which will make this sport popular among children and young people.
